Built on the ruins of a medieval castle, this luxury villa in Tuscany has been restored thoughtfully and tastefully.
Typically rustic and Tuscan on the outside and with a touch of English manor house sophistication inside, it’s a delightfully welcoming home from home. The property overlooks the estate’s ‘borgo’, meaning village in Italian, which is just a short walk away, putting wonderful restaurants, a sauna, steam room and much more, just a few minutes from your door.
The Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate, on which Villa Castello is located, has an exclusive collection of luxury villas, alongside a spa, top-quality restaurants and some of the best golf in the world. The estate’s staff are on hand to ensure you need not lift a finger, but if an escape from the world is what you’re after, Villa Castello is also the answer. Just stock up your kitchen with fresh local ingredients and retreat from the world.
Possibly the cosiest of all the villas dotted around the estate, the serene living room has a Tuscan fireplace to hunker down around should the evening turn a little chilly, and the rustic dining room with tiled floor is the perfect backdrop to meals with family and friends. The picture windows in the bedrooms are a delight to wake up to and fling back the curtains.
On hot days, the al fresco living area offers a shaded spot where you can enjoy the fantastic views and sweet, Tuscan air out of the sun’s heat. After lunch and a snooze on one of the outdoor armchairs, wander down to the private, heated pool and enjoy a long dip, looking out at a truly spectacular view.
